"They must just have more crockery, bowls as it is a self catering. Overall it is really a nice holiday cabinet."
"Excellent location to spend some time around Knysna. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating. As the house was empty, they very kindly offered us a choice of rooms and they were all great. Dieter's knowledge of the area and advice on day trips is really helpful and we had a great time, couldn..."more
"The Panorama lodge is a nice family run B&B, at the top of a hill with a wonderful view of the Knysna lagoon. Dieter and Tina are very hospitable and eager to help you with suggestions of things to do. You must have a car as it is too far to walk to restaurants or attractions and the hill is steep. ..."more
"What a suprise!! Usually when you book from the internet the photos of the accommodation and the actual accommodation is not the same. Photos on the net always seems better, however, in the case of Panorama Lodge the photos do not do justice to what you actually receive. The room was gre..."more

"Had a very pleasant weekend at Panorama. Hosts very friendly and helpful. Knysna is really worth a visit as there is plenty to do - walks in the forest, good seafood and much more. Many thanks."
"Great stay. We stayed two nights in this splendidly located B&B. Way up in the hills around Knysna, you get to enjoy a spectacular sunset over the Lagoon from their deck. Dieter, the host, has so many tips of what can be done in the neighborhood that you can easily leave your Lonely Planet home. We ..."more
"We stayed at Panorama Lodge between Christmas and New Year, last year, 2011.
What struck me the most was not the spectacular view from the breakfast deck, nor the pristine new swimming pool slightly lower than the deck, but the sheer likeability and helpfulness of the hosts, Dieter and Tina...."

"The lodge and its location do justice to its name. High up on a hill, the visitor gets a panoramic view of the surrounding area - The Heads, the lagoon, rolling green hills with houses peeping through the foliage trying to compete for space with the lush and leafy surroundings.
"We stayed at Panorama Lodge for two nights. Dieter and Tina were the perfect hosts and provided the perfect setting for a short stay. Their knowledge of the local area was matched by the care and consideration they took to make sure that we were able to get the most out of the time we had. The accom..."more

"The establishment had a top view. It had a nice, friendly and helpful family running it abd it is very family friendly.
The room itself was nice as well.
"Firstly, we were moved to a "NICER" room for free, because the room was not booked. They also have good knowledge of the surrounding, that help with planning your daily activities. Now that will surely make anyone go back. The family makes you feel right at home, no fake mannerisms there. What you s..."more
